Worth noting

• Ausmus said that two players who sustained minor injuries on Friday night reported no further trouble on Saturday. According to Ausmus, catcher Alex Avila said he could play if needed after being taken out of Friday's game in the fifth inning with a contusion on his left shin. Holaday replaced Avila on Friday, and he was in Saturday's starting lineup.

Meanwhile, pitcher Rick Porcello reported minor soreness on Saturday after taking a glancing blow off his pitching elbow Friday night.

"I don't expect it to be an issue going forward long-term, or even near-term," Ausmus said.
